Marching Band Rehearsal Absence Approval Form

If a student misses a marching band rehearsal or game for any reason, this form found below must be filled out prior to the absence.  This does not serve as an excuse for the absence but simply a way for the director’s to know where or why your child/student was not at rehearsal.  Our absence policy will be gone over in detail with the students the first day of school.

How to get up-to-the-minute band updates


The easiest way for you to keep up with news and weather changes throughout band camp and the entire season is to download the “BAND” app on your cell phone and join the group “Lowndes High Georgia Bridgemen”. You will provide your name to join (no partial names or nicknames please).
Once you are in the app, click on the gear in the bottom right corner, then click on “my settings” and choose “receive push notifications”. That will give you up-to-the-minute information from Mr. Bowman.

During camps and rehearsals, it is very hard for directors to answer emails, as they are busy with the students every single moment.
Make it a daily habit to check: the band’s website, facebook page, or the “BAND” app. The answers to most of your questions will be posted there. If there is a schedule change (due to last minute thunderstorm), it will be posted in the “BAND” app, as soon as the decision is made.
